DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — There's a shiny, odd-shaped car turning laps — and heads — at Daytona International Speedway.

It's been dubbed the "chrome missile," and even though it's not the fastest Prototype entered in this weekend's Rolex 24 at Daytona, it certainly could wreak havoc in the first race of the newly formed United SportsCar Championship.

The DeltaWing is the freshest and funkiest car to hit the famed track in nearly 50 years.

Action Express Racing driver Christian Fittipaldi says "it almost looks like a three-wheeler. You look at it and say, 'Is a motorcycle going to be racing against us?'"

The technologically advanced car, which looks like a cross between a fighter jet and a concept model, is racing a full season in the Prototype series.
